Delarc’s THRIVE location held another fun and bubbly Paint and Sip. The canvases, easels, paint, and paintbrushes were set up in the Hamden cafeteria. A group who signed up for the paint n sip, grabbed their spot and was eager to get started. Barbara Stoesser, the lead artist, walked the group through a fun painting of a moon, dark blue sky, along with pussy willows and tulips.
Life Coaches, Jessica Baldi and Wionna Myers as well as Delarc’s volunteer Stephanie Nelson assisted the group during each step. They gave the group an option for a flute glass of sparkling cider or champaign with fruit to go along with their paint and sip experience.
The event was a success. Everyone had a fun and laid-back time. One of the best parts about paint and sip events are the results of everyone’s interpretation of the painting instructions. Some chose to place their moon closer towards the corner of the canvas, some moons were large, some were small. Some painted more pussy willows whereas others painted more tulips, and some decided to paint whatever their heart desired which was encouraged. The paintings were unique and different like each person. Everyone shared a fun experience and came away with a potential Mother’s Day gift (as Dawn Davis suggested).
